The Board of Directors of the New York Junior Tennis League, which began providing tennis programs for New York City youth more than 40 years ago, has announced that the organization will change its name to New York Junior Tennis & Learning effective immediately.
“This name change is being made to better reflect NYJTL’s mission to develop life skills through tennis and education programs for at-risk children ages 8-18 throughout New York City’s five boroughs,” said Board chairman Martin S. Goldberg.
In 2009, the United States Tennis Association, which administers the 650-chapter National Junior Tennis & Learning (NJTL) network, changed the organization’s name from National Junior Tennis League to National Junior Tennis & Learning.
“We are in complete sync with National Junior Tennis & Learning.” said NYJTL CEO and President Deborah Antoine, “This sends a strong message to parents, schools, and our other partners in the community about NYJTL’s priorities both on the tennis court and in the classroom.”
With the name change, NYJTL has also introduced a new contemporary logo while retaining its tagline: “Achieving net gains for kids.”
This new logo will be updated on all NYJTL materials this fall.
NYJTL programs are made possible by the generous support of corporate citizens, public officials and individuals. Click here to learn more.
